Queen's Park, Crewe :: Shared Description

The main public park for the town of Crewe, opened in 1888 and covering about 17 hectares. The park is elliptical in shape, surrounded by a carriage drive, and laid out quite formally. It was extensively restored c.2010. Facilities include a boating lake (formed from the Valley Brook, a minor tributary of the River Weaver), minigolf, cafe, children's playground and bandstand. At the centre of the park is a memorial to the fallen of the South African War of 1899-1902.

The official name is Queen's Park (the queen in question being Victoria) but locals also just call it Crewe Park.
